Product Description

Rie Warren gives readers a bad boy bachelor and a tattooed vixen in this hot new release from her steamy southern series.

New York Times bestselling paranormal author, Nicky—Nick—Love is anything but successful in love. For years he’s lost himself in his writing career, but now he’s ready to get back to his rebel-boy roots. While restoring a motorcycle at Stone’s Auto Service, he meets the Wildcat of his dreams. She’s a shock to the system for the romance writer who doesn’t remember a damn thing about wooing a woman.

Cool-as-ice, Catarina “Wildcat” Steele is utterly untouchable until Nicky ignites a spark she can’t control. Their electric attraction explodes as Nicky pursues her, but he comes bearing the baggage of a family tragedy he’s hidden from everyone. He knows love has no guarantees.

Their passionate romance falls apart when Nicky discovers Cat’s secret rivals his own. The truth about her past reopens Nicky’s raw wounds and awakens a ghost he never laid to rest. He doesn’t know how to have Cat, and now he can’t trust her. Will they be torn apart . . . or tamed by love?

★✩★✩★ 5 -LOVE THIS SERIES- Stars ★✩★✩★

~Wildcat riled me up and made me feel alive like no other woman had.~

I have no problem owning up to my reaction when I came across the email showing a new Rie Warren book coming out, especially when I saw it was the next in the Carolina Bad Boys Series.... Total Freak Out!!

There is just something about this woman that gets me every time and this series became a fast addiction. What's different about it is the fact that it's told entirely from our badbiy Alpha man's POV, something I imagine is not easy to do but Rie pulls it off beautifully. These men are crass, dirty, foul, hilarious, hott and yet they have these sweet sides that never cross over to even slightly feminine. They are also not afraid to show emotion when the situation calls for it, they just handle it differently than a woman does which I expect. This book did have a slightly different feel to it from the first one; where book one leaned more on the funny/sexy side with a dash of drama, this one dove into the more serious topic of addiction. That's not to say it was too heavy, or that it ran on angst over-load, but it definitely had a darker feel to it at times as we got up close and personal with Josh's best friend, Paranormal Romance Author ~ Nicky Love...

~a woman with a troubled past was a headache I didn't need. I had too many skeletons in my own closet. I didn't have any room for anybody else's.~

Nick already went through the man-whore phase of his life and he's over it. That's not to say he's looking for love, he firmly believes the only HEA's he will ever experience are the ones he writes into his books.

Loved it

I love the easiness and flow of the story Rie Warren creates a beautiful world full of love, lust and hotties!!!

I found this story quite more emotional than the first in the series.

Nicky is hard headed and strong and drool worthy, his attraction to Cat is strong and entirely believable.

Cat is cool all inked arms and tragic past. She has bite and vulnerability to boot.

They both ride the emotional roller coaster to get the HEA

A real page turner with everything!!!

All up I enjoyed this instalment and really look forward to Steele's story which is next.

3.5 Stars...While I liked this one I must admit it wasn't as good as I was expecting for some reason. I think when Nick found out about Cat's secret I didn't like his reaction. Of cause he kind of redeemed him self and I was glad they got their HEA. Again the slang threw me a bit but not to unmanageable. Overall an enjoyable read but just not wow for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addicted To Love! and Stone 13 December 2014
By Lori JG OBrien - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Addicted To Love! and Stone,! ALL of Rie's panty melting men! I've been taken by Rie Warren's writing in a way I'd only ever experienced with JR WARD. Can't get enough of her alpha characters - her fresh writing approach - the sense of humor - and the sizzle between the sheets uh err pages!!

I've said since I read Rie's first book, she has something different! A special knack for writing men, a fresh approach to romancing - from the "Bad Boy's" raunchy, raw, animalistic and very often hilarious POV. Rie & her characters own me! I'm helpless to do anything but read the minute she gives us a new story. AND SHE'S SO DAMN FAST! With other authors, especially best sellers, we wait year(s) for sequels to stories we love, But not with Rie! She pounds em out and demands they get into our hands faster than..well -.faster than the hens would blow Stone if given the chance!

Which reminds me! Wasn't Stone a hoot in this round!? I loved all the glimpses of him & LeeLee settling into their relationship and planning the wedding. He's a different version of the tryin to be gay for the day - we first met. He's Stone the Barbarian Romancer, at times - Stone I don't give a f**k - Rhett Butler - and ahhhh Daddy Stone *sighs*.

These Alpha guys work hard; play hard; stay hard ; and love their women hard!

Nicky was a wonderful - hot- sexy, surprise. My experience meeting this Nicky , is kind of like the Clark Kent to Superman transformation - right down to the part where he's a man of Steele!
Cat Steele that is.
Raven hair to her ass.
A knock out body -
Icy vibe and fiery eyes
Along with the " I have 2 Biker Brother's" so don't mess with me, tude, that gets Nicky slapped in the face during their first conversation.
Cat is LeeLee's opposite - and the attraction is instantaneous.

I love the humor was still there, with a lot of our old fav secondary characters,like the shop guys & writing hens... along w/ some great new ones - and the ever growing feel of family and small town, southern living. The drama cranked up a lot in LOVE, the story line matured - and Rie took us for a Ride on this one, that left me breathless and ready for more - so much more.
**I could read her books and characters even if there were 11 of them with over 500 pages each - Like JR Ward.**

Theres so much to LOVE about this book - the series, the characters, the QUICK turn around time Rie's been able to write and release - all of Rie's work!!

Great read, an absolute STEAL at .99. **feel bad for Rie - I've paid so much more for such LESS reading experience** She really deserves an avalanche of success with this series .

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars for Nicky Love 29 October 2015
By Pet - Published on

Oh, Nicky. I loved Nicky from Stone and I’m so glad we got to him next.

Nick is Josh’s best friend and you’d think that the debacle that occurred at the author event would have hurt his author standing, but it did nothing but improve it. Not what I expected. The whole time I read Stone I was expecting their small lie to devastate his career.

What we learn about Nick in this book is that he loves a challenge. I didn’t really get that from the first book and I’m not exactly sure that it’s completely explained in this one, but regardless that’s how he perceives Cat and the reason why he pursues her so aggressively.

Cat is one of those women who is very capable in her job and well liked by others, but she also isn’t very warm and doesn’t interact with the men in the shop and definitely not with Nick. I felt for her when you learn why she’s so closed off and I got a little pissed at Nick when he couldn’t deal.
It comes down to the fact that both of them are hiding things from the other and that neither one of them really knows what motivates them. How can you develop a relationship when you’re only providing part of the picture.

You’ll get a little more Josh, Leelee, JJ and the guys in this book and they make it just as much fun in this book as they did the last.

My Review:
In-your-face, unrepentant, lay it all out there...these Carolina Bad Boys are absolutely not going to be for everyone. They're rough, they're crude, they're rude...but at their hearts they love their women like no other. I loved the first book (Stone: At Your Service) so much, but a lot of that was because it was set at a romance writer's convention. I wasn't sure I would like this one as much when it got away from that setting, but I did.

These books and characters are irreverent and completely different from any other heroes out there in the romance world. Honestly, I think Rie Warren has probably hit the nail on the head with how her guys act in its representation of guys as a whole and how they act and talk when women aren't around. Regardless, it makes for an enjoyable book...simply in the fact that it's such a different style than 99.9% of the books out there. The book is told entirely from Nicky's pov. While he may be a romance writer in his professional life, he's a guy's guy in his every day life.

Throughout this book, he is trying to get Cat Steele to give him a chance. Cat doesn't do relationships after some bad choices a few years back. Honestly, she doesn't feel like she deserves happiness like that with someone...esp. someone like Nicky who has his own ghosts from his past haunting him. He doesn't need her ghosts too. But this is the first time in forever that Nicky can remember ever being this interested in a woman. For the first time, he can see a future relationship with someone...a kind of forever style of relationship and he's not willing to give up on that idea.

In the middle of all this is Josh Stone and his boys at the shop always giving Nicky a hard time. There are Cat's two protective older brothers who don't trust Nicky to take care of their sister and not break her heart. She's had enough pain in her life. She doesn't need anymore heartbreak and they are determined to keep that from happening.

This book is about friendship and forgiveness and learning how to move on from past mistakes. Yes, it's irreverent and the characters are loud and rambunctious, but I loved it. Nicky takes care of the people in his life. He has his tribe of souls that he would do anything for and you have to love a guy like that. No, this book is not going to be for everyone, but I LOVED IT. I fell in love with Nicky right alongside Cat (actually, I think I fell in love with him first, but...ya know, fictional character and all that...and honestly, Rie probably has dibs on both him and Josh. Maybe she'd share them on off-nights...)

I highly recommend you check out the sample on Amazon (or Rie probably has excerpts on her website) because I have a feeling that you'll fall in love with these guys too. Now bring on the Steele boys!!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot beginning, slow middle, explosive end 16 December 2014
By Mama Vicky - Published on

I really enjoyed this book. "Stone: At your service" was my first introduction to Rie Warren and I have become a fan since then. It was great seeing a man so set against love end up being tamed by it. As I said I did enjoy the book, but the further it went I found myself wishing it would speed up as things just seemed to be stagnant. However, when they did (speed up that is), they really did. I loved seeing both Nick and Cat deal with their humanness, and mistakes, and become stronger for it. For those who are broken, Cat Steele serves us some encouragement that you can pick yourself up and become stronger. I loved how Josh and Leelee were very active in this story, and yet didn't take the spotlight away from Nick and Cat. Fabulous book and I can't wait for the next book.

What could be between two souls that have so much hide ... Well that is the story of Catarina and Nick .. Opposite in everything at first or what they think but soon realize that when there together they make all the hurt of the past to go away ... Nick a writer and Cat part owner in Chrome and Steele, one hot ride ... Must read to find out all the secrets ... Loved it
